A slice of Americana will be told in music Friday when folk musician Bob Zentz performs on the Gazebo Stage in front of The Smithfield Times. The concert begins at 8 p.m.
Zentz, an accomplished folk musician, plays dozens of instruments and brings a variety of them to each concert he performs. He has a repertoire of more than 2,000 songs, including many with Virginia and Chesapeake Bay origins. His albums focus on traditional folk, Celtic and maritime music, and he has traveled as far as Australia spreading America's story in song.
